The Elora Cataract Trailway
The Elora Cataract Trailway runs through rolling countryside just east of Elora, to the historic community of Fergus, and past Belwood Lake to reach the Forks of Credit Provincial Park at Cataract. In Fergus, signs direct trail users through town streets for approximately two kilometres (1.2 miles). The trail passes through the Belwood Lake Conservation Area and is surfaced with stone dust along the entire length.
Restaurants and provisions are available in Elora and Fergus. There is a family restaurant close to the trail at Belwood Lake Conservation and two restaurants in the Village of Belwood. A general store in Orton provides soft drinks and other small items.
A vault toilet is provided for trail users at Belwood Lake Conservation Area. Amenities along the developed sections of the trail include distance markers in kilometres and some benches.
